Nightcap National Park

The beautiful World Heritage Nightcap National Park is easily accessible by car from Byron Bay. This large lush rainforest is home to the awesome 103m Minyon Falls, the world famous Protestors Falls and scenic Mt Nardi. An array of walks of varying levels and difficulty can be experienced throughout this National Park. If touring by car, Whian Whian Scenic Drive is a great way to experience this park. Traversing Nightcap National Park and Whian Whian State Forest this 30km drive takes you through varied vegetation and spectacular scenery. The drive is a narrow dirt road suitable for two-wheel drives in dry weather. The drive goes past towering flooded gums, subtropical and warm temperate rainforest and Blackbutt plantations.
